Hendry's Beach Sea Foam

My environmental studies professor (Dawn Murray from Antioch University) explained it this way: "Sea foam forms when big waves trap air in the surf zone and phytoplankton in the water act as a foaming agent."

Thank you for explaining what sea foam is. I've always wondered about it.

Taken from that angle, you can almost see the mounds of foam as mini icebergs. Cool.

"Algal blooms are one common source of thick sea foams. When large blooms of algae decay offshore, great amounts of decaying algal matter often wash ashore. Foam forms as this organic matter is churned up by the surf. Most sea foam is not harmful to humans and is often an indication of a productive ocean ecosystem." (NOAA)
